VIJAYAWADA: Come Monday, the state will start using a new smartphone application, developed by the state health department, for better online monitoring of the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination drive. According to the health department, the chief minister on Saturday directed all district collectors to complete the vaccination of frontline and health workers in 72 hours.  

The inoculation campaign commenced with health workers, and later extended to frontline workers. However, even after more than a month there are half-a-million beneficiaries still to be vaccinated. A majority of them are yet to receive the second jab. All medical officers will feed the details of individuals as and when the latter get vaccinated, in the app. Login credentials (username and password) have been allotted to every medical officer. The department has directed all frontline and healthcare workers to get vaccinated by Monday as per the time slots allotted and notified to them through SMS alerts.
